How does this rose go own-root?

Own-root is very small, best as grafted for alkaline soil. Mary rose is prickly and doesn't make good cut flower.

Can I grow the Mary Rose rose variety in the tropics? I live in Malaysia which is a tropical rainforest in the equatorial belt. We have high temperatures, high humidity and a scorching sun throughout the year. There are two fairly distinct rainy seasons a year plus occasional rain which could be a tropical shower or a downpour with thunderstorms.
I would appreciate any advice on the Mary Rose. Also, any suggestions on a rose variety suitable for this part of the world.
Why the Mary Rose? Because that's my daughter's name.
Thank you.

I chose the Mary Rose because it was my dear mother-in-laws'
name. This year it has turned red. I am a pink rose person.
What happened? How can I get it pink again?

'Mary Rose' sported to the white 'Winchester Cathedral' in 1988. I wonder if you could have a red sport? Is it just the one cane, or all over the bush? Does the flower form seem the same as the pink 'Mary Rose'? I have a cane on my white 'Winchester Cathedral' that fairly regularly reverts to the pink 'Mary Rose' so I think there is a bit of instability there somewhere.

You maybe can call yourself proudly the discoverer of a red sport of the "Mary Rose"! Does the rose look, apart from the colour, completely the same as the Mary Rose? Or is its appearance completely different? In that case it could be the rootstock. Is it possible for You to upload some pictures, so they can be compared.
For the breeder of the "Mary Rose" it might be interesting or for breeders in the USA and abroad. So I would suggest to let someone inoculate this sport, and when that was successfull You might cut the rose back to the part where only pink roses emerge.
Even when it is interesting for Austin (the breeder of the Mary Rose) he might send you in exchange for cuttings some new pink-ones! Maybe You can give this rose a name, because You discovered it.
Good Luck.

Is it correct that this rose does not attract blackfly

Your link to the Nova Scotia Agricultural College disease resistance is not working. I searched nsac and they must have taken the study off of their site.

You're right. I couldn't find it either. The link has been removed, probably out of date.
